Project Description

Kudos to the founder – Carol Cooke, and women entrepreneurs engaged in the Barefoot in Business initiative – taking the work of the UNSG High-Level Panel on Women’s Economic Empowerment forward! This is an impressive undertaking designed to mobilize investment in and provide a marketplace for products produced by women in Uganda as well as inspire and uplift the participating school girls in Glasgow. I believe that this approach can be scaled up over time and applied in other countries for greater impact. Therefore I am honored to support and champion Barefoot in Business #500 Women!
